Princethorpe's Beekeepers Collect The Honey
Princethorpe's bees and beekeepers have been busy as of late. After a long hot summer, it was time to start collecting the honey.
First the honeycombs were brought down from the hives ready for our beekeepers to extract the honey. Then the frames were prepared, with the wax cap that the bees put on the honey removed. The frames were inserted in a centrifuge and spun to get the honey out and, finally, the beekeepers collected the fruits of their and the bees' labour! The tub is approximately half the honey which was extracted from one of the hives. All the beekeepers will get a share of the honey and any left over will be sold in support of the school's charities.
Beekeeping club meets after school on Wednesday, see Mr Vella for more details.
